Abstract

AGSO's 1995-96 Petrel Sub-basin Study was undertaken within AGSO's Marine, Petroleum and Sedimentary Resources Division (MPSR) as part of MPSR's North West Shelf Project. The study was aimed at understanding the stratigraphic and structural development of the basin as a framework for more effective and efficient resource exploration. Specifically, the study aimed to: - define the nature of the major basement elements underlying the Petrel Sub-basin and their influence on the development of the basin through time, - determine the nature and age of the events that have controlled the initiation, distribution and tectonic evolution of the basin; - define the nature and age of the basin fill, and the processes that have controlled its deposition and deformation; and, importantly, - determine the factors controlling the development and distribution of the basin's petroleum systems and occurrences.
